Great event, I had a ton of fun in the Civic! Can't wait for the next one and I'll see how much faster I can push my 94 hp and 155/80/13 tires . I was able squeeze out a 1:20.7 + 2 seconds, I really need some more seat time!

Sorry about that! Found the limit of those tires on that run! There is a very fine line between slipping and gripping on those tires, finding that line got me from a 1:27 down to a 1:20.7 + 2 second penalty. My next run was a lot smoother coming in, but damn it's a fine line between "sweet!" and "whoa!"
